A Very Happy Sesame Street Birthday

In honor of the 40th birthday of Sesame Street, the original version of the all-time awesomest Sesame Street song EVER:

(How does one spell MAN-NA MAN-NA, anyway? MAH-NA MAH-NA? MANNA MANNA? MAH-NUH MAH-NUH?)


(doo doo doo-doo-doo)


Happy Birthday, Sesame. Thank you for the many, many hours of joy, and for the many that you’ll provide to my kids.

My kids don’t watch it these days because it just isn’t very good any more, in my opinion. But I just showed my (sick at home) almost-four-year-old this video and he was mesmerized.
“I like it!” he said.
“We can watch it because it’s silly, right?” he asked.
“Can we watch it again?” he asked when it was done.
Yes, yes we can.

My first child, my daughter, was born the same year as Sesame Street….and she and her younger brother grew up with it. An amazing show, and worth all the congratulation it gets! Happy Birthday, Sesame Street!
